For young people to feel empowered to participate within their community they need to feel a sense of belonging.....
National Strategy for Young Australians
Without Community, Young people can't thrive.
Without young people, Communities can't thrive.
In our eyes they go hand in hand.
Free2b Girls inspires local community support for our programs and services, both financial and in kind, so young people can feel that their communities care...
And communities can feel like they
In fact, we won't let our program happen if we don't think there are enough local supports in place!
Free2b is all about sustain - ability.
And if the 'ability' is not there in the first instance, then we'll spend time with communities to help build it up.
We'll run an event, we'll chat with councils, we'll share why it's vital for youth to be cared for....why they need a community to belong to.
And if all that fails then Free2b Girls has 52 Women supporting us in the background, so when a bit of extra help is needed to sustain a Free2b Girls program, there are women who will lend a hand......as that's just what women do!
